Batman: AA/AC Steam Patch Live GFWL/Securom removal

Woah, i just checked my Steam-library. A year ago i bought the vanilla-version of Arkham City since the GOTY-edition wasn't out yet, now i have an entry for both vanilla and GOTY-edition on Steam. Guess that is their apology for using GFWL in the first place

Alright I got a reply back from WB:

Greetings XXXX,

Please send in a screenshot of the error message that you receive in steam and we should be able to replace your key for you.


Thank you,

I sent them an assload of screenshots from both GFWL and steam. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Amazing!

The Dubba-Dubba-Dubba-Dubba-Dubba-U-Bee came through!

I got my Batman:AA steam code by email and now it sits happily on my steam library. Now I can finally uninstall the GFWL client forever. Though it's still attached like a parasite on steam games that still use it...

I purchased the game through Steam when the game first came out. Will I lose my game save, or is that only people that purchased it through GFWL?

I had 90 hours on AC, and as much as I didn't like GFWL, I would have rather continued dealing with it than losing my save.

I keep getting an error "failed to contact key server". I bought it on steam like 2 days ago. UGH anyone know how to fix this?

Wow. Just checked my Steam account and not only do I have my 90 hour save still intact, I have GOTY edition too. I only had Vanilla AC with the challenge map pack DLC that had Penguin's Iceberg Lounge, and now I have everything.

Pretty cool.

launch it from within the game folder with bmlauncher.exe.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

My vanilla AC with all of my saved progress still uses GFWL though, so I suspect that this save file is living on borrowed time.

If so that sucks because I don't want to have to unlock all the challenge maps again Plus I never beat New Game +, and if I have to go through the entire campaign again to unlock it a second time, I probably wont bother.

Oh well, at least I can play that Harley Quinn DLC.

Does the physical copies of Arkham City activate on Steam now? My local shop has a physical copy of Arkham City at a cheap price, was thinking of getting it.
